Delta Electronics, Inc. has provided its latest high efficiency solutions for solar energy generation, storage, management and environment control systems will power the “Orchid House,” which is built to compete at the 2014 Solar Decathlon Europe by the National Chiao Tung University (NCTU).

Yancey Hai, Chairman of Delta Electronics, said, “Supporting NTCU Unicode’s project shows Delta’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and promoting the adaptation of green building, which we believe is a key driver for energy conservation and sustainability for years to come”.

The "Orchid House" designed by NCTU Unicode Team from National Chiao Tung University for  the 2014 Solar Decathlon Europe. Delta Electronics provides come energy solutions to it.

Delta’s solution for the “Orchid House” consists of Delta BEMS (Delta Building Energy Management System) and the Battery Energy Storage Solution (BESS). The Delta BEMS constitutes of the “Triple A” – Active in Sensing, Amicable of UI, and Aptitude with Management – and is programmed a comprehensive Solution for Building Energy Management. It provides building owners with high-efficiency and intelligent energy control methods include Delta IoT (Internet of Things) Platform, Delta Centre (software data collection), Delta Expert (intelligent energy-saving), and Delta Energy Online (energy monitoring & control).

Delta’s BESS installed at the “Orchid House,” besides, integrates hardware and software for total solutions. Delta designs a software platform which enables a power controller to monitor and control all rectifiers, PV inverters and the Li-ion battery inside the BESS through power line communication. By integrating related products, Delta’s BESS performs to reduce electricity bills by maximizing the utility of renewable energy systems, which optimizes the “Orchid House’s” power supply system.

“The solutions implemented by for “Orchid House” deliver remarkable levels of energy generation and storage while enabling an integrated platform of intelligent energy management that truly fosters energy conservation while still satisfying comfort requirements of a building,” emphasized Jackie Chang, general manager of Delta EMEA. “We look forward to replicating this success throughout the EMEA region to allow our customers to achieve greater benefits from renewable energy sources”.
